Wait, UFC's Next Big Thing Works at a Topless Club in Fort Worth?


   Highlight of UFC's Fight Night 26 was undoubtedly Chael Sonnen's standing guillotine submission on Shogun Rua.
   But another fighter caught the eye of the MMA world with his own guillotine, and he hails from Fort Worth. And, get this, works at a topless club.
   James Vick, a wiry, 155-pound badass who's worked as a floor manager at Bucks Cabaret since 2011, stole the early show at Boston's TD Garden Saturday night with a deft submission of Ramsey Nijem. It was Vick's first UFC fight. And it took all of 58 seconds.
   For his effort, Vick - who earned his way into the UFC octagon via Spike TV's The Ultimate Fighter - earned $18,000 and a victory party Tuesday night at Bucks. I don't understand a lick of Spanish in the video play-by-play, but I do know one thing:
   Vick's nickname - "The Texecutioner" - is awesome.
